Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): 14x16 | House Size (Sq feet): 1900
Bought in 1994 , Price Paid: 1800
Location : Florence, OR 97439, USA
Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store - CJ's Home & Hearth

Likes: This was probably the best & quietest pellet stove made.
It was used nearly daily 11 months of the year for about 7 years before the firepot ball broke requiring a new (unfortunately redesigned) firepot.

Dislikes: The company went belly up and was sold.
I've had difficulties getting replacement parts.
The firepot underwent redesign and the new one (with no ball) is not as effecient.
Stove will not work during power failures as it relies on power for the blowers.

Comments: I believe it was sold to Pierce Engineering, and later to Weyerhaeuser, which seems to have let it die.
This was a wonderful stove but finding parts and qualified people to work on it is a problem.
It is no longer manufactured.
